Sam Smith - In the Lonely Hour

Posted 2 years ago

Over the course of 2013 and early 2014, UK crooner Sam Smith has been building anticipation for the release of his major-label debut album with stunning singles like "Lay Me Down" and "Money on My Mind." Now, the project's arrival (in the States) is upon us.

In the Lonely Hour features 10 brand new jams from the British soul star, who penned all tracks in collaboration with longtime songwriting partner Jimmy Napes. Throughout the set, he showcases his powerful pipes over instrumentals by the likes of Disclosure, Eg White, Fraser T Smith, Tourist, Two Inch Punch and Zane Lowe.

In the Lonely Hour is available for purchase at online retailers as of June 17, via Capitol Records. You can stream the set over at NPR.
